University of Namur

Kenneth Houngbedji graduated from the Ecole Nationale de la Statistique et de l'Analyse Economique (ENSAE) in Dakar, Senegal, as engineer in statistics and has a Masters in Public Policy and Development from the Paris School of Economics where he is also currently completing his PhD in Economics. His research interests are in economic history, development and environmental economics, experimental economics and quantitative methods. His current research focuses on the effects of land registration programmes on different domains including time allocation, investment, productivity, intra-household relations and gender. In his work, Kenneth uses new data to provide empirical tests of existing theories on property rights and investigates alternative ways through which those programmes impact household welfare. Prior to his doctoral studies he worked as researcher evaluating education measures at PASEC (Programme d’Analyse des Systèmes Educatifs de la CONFEMEN), where he designed, supervised and carried out various educational surveys in Sub-Saharan Africa.
